They play in the Meadow. The dancing girl with the dark hair and blue eyes. The boy with blond curls and gray eyes, struggling to keep up with her on his chubby toddler legs. It took five, ten, fifteen years for me to agree. But Peeta wanted them so badly. When I first felt her stirring inside of me, I was consumed with a terror that felt as old as life itself. Only the joy of holding her in my arms could tame it. Carrying him was a little easier, but not much. The questions are just beginning. The arenas have been completely destroyed, the memorials built, there are no more Hunger Games. But they teach about them at school, and the girl knows we played a role in them. The boy will know in a few years. How can I tell them about that world without frightening them to death? My children, who take the words of the song for granted: Deep in the meadow, under the willow a bed of grass, a soft green pillow. Lay down your head, and close your sleepy eyes and when again they open, the sun will rise. Here it’s safe, here it’s warm, here the daisies guard you from every harm. Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true, here is the place where I love you. My children, who don’t know they play on a graveyard.

THIS IS HOW THE BRITISH PRESS RESPONDS TO THE KILLINGS OF DISABLED CHILDREN. All of these extracts were taken from UK news websites. the final tweet is in response to a now-deleted tweet from politician Sandy Kaylan, who praised a mother for ‘euthanising’ her infant children

tania Clarence, 43, admitted to smothering three of her children, all of whom suffered from physical disabilities. Regardless of the circumstances that led to their tragic deaths, these methods of reporting are unethical and go against the British editors code of practice - which states that, once proceedings are active, the press cannot publish any material that could create substantial risk of prejudice in court. The language used in these articles (“tragic mum”, “the unbearable burden of care”, putting the word murder in scare quotes, etc) does exactly that. Reading these articles, it is clear who we are meant to “side” with.

that these rules on court proceedings are apparently not applicable to cases involving the killing of disabled children shows how little the British press (and by extension, the public) cares about the welfare of disabled people in this country. Calling these children burdens and implying they deserved to die reinforces ableism and makes the world a more dangerous place for disabled people. Yet the press does not count it as encouraging prejudice. maybe it’s because we believe the unlawful killing of disabled infants does not “count” as a real crime

This is abhorrent.

5,000 notes. Tumblr really that’s it?

UM NO I LIVE RIGHT NEAR WHERE THIS HAPPENED and she is not being charged under the diminished responsibility law. AKA because she was mentally unstable, like when say someone with schizophrenia kills someone they are not put in jail they are put in a psychiatric unit because they were not fully in control of their action due to mental health issues. She is going to hospital for a long long time, which is a better place for her than prison. So she will be punished because what she did was wrong but she will serve her sentence elsewhere.

^ That’s good to know.

Still, I am concerned about the way the media is talking about this, as though it’s perfectly reasonable to want to kill your kids if they’re disabled.

You’re right, I think the chosen headlines here are underwhelming when considering the atrocity of the crime. Perhaps because when the story broke the headlines were more outraged, but now it’s sort of ‘old news’ and with the mothers reported ‘mental instability’ they are going for the softer angle. Whatever the case this story does need more coverage with a greater emphasis on how wrong it is to use disability as an excuse for murder.

HOW IS THIS NOT EVERYWHERE?

Reblogging this good news…again.

y’all know EXACTLY why this isn’t everywhere. don’t pretend to be oblivious

Well let’s spread the word then guys. This kid deserves all the attention.

"Ramarni, what will you do when you grow up?"
"Literally everything."
So excited when I hear stories like this because imagine what he will accomplish

The fuck people talking about ‘we know why this isn’t anywhere’ I have seen this story in like a hundred different places. Tumblr will find any reason to jump on supposed racism. Fucking go check the motherfucking huge internet and see that this is all over the place.
